Steve,
I know that you don't get the chance to read the forums very often, but I wanted to thank you for writing "Selfless Love" and didn't know any other way. I have been a fan of your music for a long time. You taught me to always play from my heart. Today your music helped me to get through a very tough time in my life. I always thought of my mom when I listened to your song "Selfless Love" and when we were planning her funeral a few days ago I realized it was the perfect song to express everything I wanted to say to her. We celebrated her life today and everyone present, whether Vai fans or not, were deeply touched by your beautiful song. Thank you for writing it and thank you for helping me to say goodbye to my mother and my best friend.
Sincerely,
Tim Lane

Hi Tim,
Sorry to hear about your mom. Steve's music has helped me through some trying times, too. He is full of emotion and not afraid to show that emotion. It's one of the many reasons I love Steve.
Thinking of you at this trying time. Take care.
